I have a pain in my left groin, left buttock and it is painful to walk. Could it be a pinched nerve? It hurts to sit.

Yes, Pinched nerve: The description of the pain does fit a 'pinched lumbar nerve'. A lumbar spine MRI is the best test to check out the possiblility. You should get seen and you may get a prescription for Medrol (methylprednisolone) pack to help with the nerve inflammation. Warning signs are bladder/bowel changes and/or severe weakness.

Uncertain: This could be a muscle pull. There could be other issues such as joint, bone, tendons, bursa and you do have medical conditions that also could be related to this problem . I would try simple therapy such as heat or cold and see if that gives you relief. You need to see your physician and get this fully evaluated. ...Read more

Sciatica: Sciatica is also a "pinched nerve". It looks like you would need to get some imaging studies done to get properly evaluated like an MRI of your lower spine. Yur PMD can get these done, but based on the insurance, may need a referral to neurologist. ...Read more

Can a pinched nerve cause harsh lower back pain that runs down the left bum & leg , bladder pain, femoral pain and fever?

Polyradiculopathy : A pinched nerve in the low back can commonly cause back pain as well as pain in the lower extremity ("bum", leg, femur, etc.). If the femoral pain is in the front of the thigh, it is likely multiple nerves are irritated at the same time. "bladder pain" and fever may be due to a separate entity such as a uti. However, spinal cord infection & cauda equina syndrome must be ruled out->an emergency. ...Read more

Suggestions: Would visit a physiatrist and try to localize cause of your discomfort. Meds are merely palliative, and will coverup but not cure. Physical therapy may be useful, and eventually a back exercise program will help. You may benefit from back injections, acupuncture, osteopathic treatments, or even prolotherapy, but you need to uncover pain generator! ...Read more
